Are Ashton Kutcher & Demi Moore legally married?

If Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore split it could be a very expensive divorce — if in fact they are actually married.

Ashton Kutcher Demi Moore weddingAshton Kutcher and Demi Moore wed in 2005 in an intimate home ceremony in front of 100 guests — but rumor has it the night was little more than a commitment ceremony.

A blind item last January got the rumor started:

“This famous actor and actress couple got married several years ago. Although it was a hastily-arranged secret wedding, you’ve probably seen a few good photos of the event. Well, guess who’s not really married? We mean legally. While their wedding was a religious commitment ceremony and family party, they never got around to the actual marriage license part. Well, at least that should make their ‘divorce’ easier.”

Tongues immediately started wagging that the couple in question was Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, mostly because of the “secret wedding” part (candid images leaked after the nuptials) and the references to “a few good photos”, which many thought was a hint in reference to Demi’s role in A Few Good Men, and “guess who’s not” possibly being a reference to Kutcher’s flick Guess Who.

If true, the lack of legality could save the couple a lot of dough. They reportedly have a total of $306 million in assets, but if they never legally wed then they probably kept their finances separate too. In that case, what’s his is his and what’s hers is hers. Moore is worth approximately $150 million herself, while Kutcher pulls in $700,000 an episode for Two and a Half Men.

Ashton Kutcher is being accused of cheating on the couple’s sixth wedding anniversary. So far reps have not returned SheKnows’ requests for comment.
